A Mystery Solved
17 May 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

When kindly Richard Daniels gets his back pension, he takes Our Gang on a picnic. There, they tangle with tramp Dick Gilbert.

Although the kids usually had issues with most adults, who constantly forced them to do things like go to school and practice the contrabassoon -- I'm making that one up -- they usually got on well with the elderly, who looked on them as fondly as I do, albeit with occasional bouts of exasperation. Here we see both sets of adult in practice.

This entry in the long-running series does clear up one mystery that has puzzled the ages: is Farina a boy or a girl? In this one, as Ernie Morrison's young sibling, the feminine pronoun is used. At one time, this might have puzzled people, but in this modern age, when people seem to choose their own gender, I'm glad that Alan Hoskin's character chose one that I can identify.
